Jennifer Hammond Married To Husband, Children
Jennifer has taken all her relationships very positively. Not everyone is fortunate to have relationships that last for a lifetime despite the end of its social value.
Jennifer was previously married to her husband, Brad Morton for many years. More than anything else, Jennifer and her husband had an in-depth understanding and respect for each other that linked them in a lifetime bond despite their separation as a married couple.
Jennifer has never clearly spoken on her split with her husband; however, her December 2018 Instagram post confirms that the two are not together as a couple, but still maintain a good relationship. In her Instagram, Jennifer has even posted a pleasing picture with Brad and his present wife.

The reason for their good relationship despite separation are undoubtedly their children, which is also added by their positivity and respect for one another as a person.
Jennifer has three children (2 daughters and a son) with her ex-husband. Their beautiful daughters, Morgan and Sydney have reached 25 and 15 years of age respectively. On the other hand, their dashing son Reily is 18 years old as of now.
When Jennifer and Brad’s son, Reily celebrated his 18th birthday in February 2019, the whole family was together, showing their unbreakable bond.

Hopefully, this family bond always remains the same as an inspiration to many families.
Her Fox 2 Career, Salary
Jennifer was already into the reporting field before she completed her education. She started as a reporter, writer, and producer at the Sports Information Site of her University, the Western Michigan University.
She then joined Radio Kalamazoo as an on-air personality and reporter. She worked there for four complete years from 1984 to 1988.
Later, after finishing her University, Jennifer joined Shadow Traffic as a traffic reporter. Jennifer further went on to work as a traffic reporter and sports anchor for Chicagoland Television News.
Her primary field of interest was always sports reporting. So, the lady was probably unsatisfied from her job, which led her to leave traffic reporting and join full-time sports reporting job.
